Workshop on mobile internet based services and information logistics 

Workshop, GI/ÖCG-Jahrestagung 2001,
September 26-28, 2001, Vienna, Austria 
Workshop focus

Recent technology development (internet, mobile telecommunication, internet 
appliances)  brings the idea of ubiquitious computing close to reality. This 
opens the perspective of information availability at any place at any time 
to the network economy. Thus, mobile internet computing becomes extremely 
attractive, there is a fast growing demand from users regarding mobile 
communications and mobile information access. This demand is driven by a 
broad area of application scenarios. On the other hand there are many open 
problems for research including both, hardware and software issues. 

However information availability at any place also opens up the issue of 
information overload. More sophisticated mobile applications must yield a 
personalized, demand driven information supply. We call those applications, 
delivering the right information at the right time to the right place, 
information logistical applications. 

The workshop is oriented towards people from research and industy dealing 
with the topics addressed above. The objective of the workshop is to discuss
technological and organizational issues as well as user requirements towards
mobile internet applications serving the aforementioned principles of 
information logistics. 


We are interested in papers focussing on concepts for mobile internet 
applications especially leading to information logistical applications. 
Papers can describe basic research, novel applications and experience 
reports relevant in the following fields: 

          Techniques for modelling information demand 
            (explicit models as well as implicit demand analysis) 
          Mobile computing 
            (models of locations and situations, location based services, 
             privacy models and awareness in mobile applications) 
          Information filtering / information demand models 
   2.Architectures and services 
          Mobile IP 
          Wireless application protocol 
          Mobile internet services 
          Architectures for mobile applications 
          Show cases, experience reports 
          Information logistical application services
